Euroslide at QMP

Here at QMP, we are proud UK manufactures of Euroslide. It acts as the perfect solution for tool storage. We offer bespoke designs for our Euroslide range, working closely with our customers on Euroslide projects. These projects have an intricate design process – Where ideas transform into workable solutions fitting precise customers specifications.

Our experienced sales team and hardworking production team can provide our customers with a full design service. This includes a site visit for our team to plan and measure the desired space for the Euroslide installation. Additionally, our specialised production team will provide our customers with CAD drawings. Alongside rendered imaging, customers are able to see what their product will look like in situ.

Euroslide project created at QMP will all go through the same journey before arriving to customers. The journey has 4 key stages which are: Concept, Design, Manufacturing and Installation.

Euroslide – The four stage process

Concept

Stage 1 - Concept

The first stage of the process for Euroslide projects is the concept – This is the idea process, discovering what you want for you workspace. We take your ideas and thoughts, transforming them into workable concepts. It is important we work together closely with our clients to ensure their concept can be worked into a design, which is the next phase of the process.  

Design

Stage 2 - Design

Design follows the concept process – this is QMP putting ideas to paper. Our specialist designers use softwares such as AutoCAD to design your Euroslide fit-out’s and how these will fit into specific workspaces when completed. Once the design process is completed, the project transitions to the next stage: Manufacturing.

Manufacturing

Stage 3 - Manufacturing

Manufacturing – It is what we know and do best. This is where your Euroslide project comes to life, built by our specialised factory team. With over 60 years of manufacturing experience, we ensure that it’s designed is built and crafted to the highest quality. Using quality parts and some of the most specialised equipment available, we will manufacture one of the best quality euroslide units available. Once the Euroslide units have been manufactured in our factory they are prepped for delivery.

Installation

Stage 4 - Installation

The final stage is where we install your design. Possibly the most exciting stage. The bespoke designed project will be hand fitted by a specialist team of installation experts. This final process brings the project to a close, leaving customer satisfied with a robust workspace, designed just how they envisioned it.

QMP Bespoke Fit Out

Even though our we have an extensive standard product range, we know that from time to time a user’s particular needs can only be met by a specially designed product.

 

As a UK manufacturer of workshop equipment including Lockers, it is important to be able to offer a bespoke service to our network of distributors enabling specification requirements, this may include a design change, size or colour change.

  • Examining the original sketch or idea
  • Developing the concept in harmony with QMP manufacturing methods
  • Producing a drawing or sample for approval prior to production
  • The expertise of an AutoCAD and/or JETCAM in-house designer
  • A-Z project management of the whole process, from idea through to design, all the way to delivery and installation

QMP Lockers Installation – Derby

Posted on February 11th 2020 by Rebecca Brophy - Marketing & Business Development Co-ordinator.

Bespoke Lockers

Here is an example of our Installation service with a project that was placed previously by one of our valued distributors, and installed at a Fire & Rescue Centre within Derbyshire.

This job comprised of a bespoke locker design which featured the size of 1800 high, 600 wide, 450 deep 1 compartment locker. As this was a bespoke design based on the user’s requirements, the locker was fitted with a top shelf but was manufactured lower down the locker than normal to allow room for a fire helmet. The Lockers were fitted with sloping tops, latch locks for the contents to be secured with their own padlock and locker stands.

These Lockers were powder coated with light grey for the locker carcass with 4 different door colours to match their colour scheme.

Below images are shown situated within the Fire & Rescue Centre based in Derbyshire.
